Another issue of straight superheroics as the team storms a floating hotel/casino run by this arc’s foe, a ’70s black villain w/ quake powers. Busi finally creates something original as he adds chars to the roster: young heroes Triathlon & Silverclaw. To make room, he shifts Hawkeye to T-bolts.

Avengers #8

July 23, 2013

Avengers 08Kurt Busiek // George Pérez
September 1998
****

A simple plot—the team fights cybersuit thieves at JFK—gets lifted mightily by B&P’s craft. Each char has an ongoing conflict, like rookie Firestar’s anxieties or the weird love triangle btw Wanda, holo-Vision, & Wonder Man’s Kirby-Dot ghost. This run is a masterclass in serial characterization!
